The largest animal in its family: its body length (without tail) can reach 160 cm, its tail is up to 52 cm long, shoulder height up to 90 cm and it weighs up to 86 kg. Wolf weight and size can vary greatly geographically; it has been noted that they change proportionally depending on the climate and in full accordance with Bergmann’s rule (the colder the climate, the larger the animal). On average, the animals have a shoulder height of 60–95 cm, are 105–160 cm and weigh 32–62 kg, which makes an average wolf one of the largest mammals in the family. Yearlings weigh between 20–30 kg, 2–3 year old wolves weigh 35–45 kg. A wolf grows to full size at 2.5–3 years old, reaching 50 kg or more. In Siberia and Alaska full-grown wolves can weigh more than 77 kg.
